Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating fracture patterns, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
As we noted in the introduction to this chapter, the cell fracture add on…gives us a number of options regarding…how the geometry fracturing operation takes place.…In this video, we are going to walk through the process of using…an objects' own vertices as the points…around which the fracture cells are created.…The idea, if I just scrub the timeline, is to…have our little animated rigid body part smash through this wall.…Apparently causing it to fracture into many pieces, and then come tumbling down.…But before we go ahead and create a fracture pattern with…visual interest here, it may be a good idea to take…a minute or two and use our wall geometer to demonstrate…just how the ohmvert option we will be using actually works.…
Currently, our wall, if I just select it and switch to wire frame mode, Is just…a box which due to the simple nature of its construction it…will be perfect for helping us demonstrate just how this might works.…With our wall selected then let's come over to the…tools panel and click to bring up the cell fracture controls.…
